Yes, there is such a thing as healthy stress foods.
Instead of turning to icecream, cookies, chips and candy. Here’s some healthy options that will do it better for your belly and your mind!

Oatmeal is such a great bedtime snack because high tryptophan levels induce feelings of calm, and the melatonin in oats helps you stay asleep. To make things even better, oatmeal has high amounts of B6 and magnesium, making for a very soothing food. Add some flaxseed for omega-3s, and you’ve made yourself a bowl of calm. Try these oatmeal recipes or overnight oats.
Tofu has vitamin B1, tons of tryptophan, and high levels of magnesium and omega-3s; try it as the base for this vanilla protein shake and sip your way to serenity, with a natural boost of nonjittery energy from iron.

Salmon is a de-stress superfood, and a go-to for anxiety and depression relief. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, extremely high in B vitamins, loaded with magnesium, and even has a small amount of tryptophan. You can get salmon nearly year round and stock your freezer with frozen filets for a quick, bakeable dinner that’ll help you unwind at the end of a stressful day.

Fiyat💰: 14₺ Edamame is my new favorite snack😍 It’s pretty healthy when compared to other ordinary snacks. Pick a movie and grab some Edamame, enjoy the night!
